It forwards your orders onto liquidity providers, and aggregates the best bid and offer prices, helping you secure more advantageous trading conditions. FP Markets trades on your side, not against you.

FPMarkets.com supports a wide range of trading platforms and trading styles:

  • MetaTrader 4/5: MetaTrader 4 and its successor platform, MetaTrader 5, are the world's leading retail Forex trading platforms. Enjoy one-click trading from the charts, and create automated trading strategies through the use of Expert Advisors (EAs). FP Markets supports all EAs, including hedging and scalping bots.
  • cTrader: also allows hedging, scalping and the use of automated trading strategies. It's recognised for its fast execution speeds, customisable interface, advanced charting capabilities and broad selection of technical indicators. Like MetaTrader, cTrader is available for download across all devices.

Swap-free accounts

Swap-free MetaTrader accounts, also known as Islamic accounts, are also available upon request. An administration fee applies when positions are kept open over two or more trading days in a row.

Of note, FP Markets allows you to open more than one account, so you aren't limited to a single platform. Visit FPMarkets.com for more information.
